With picturesque sea views out over the Islands of Linga and Papa Little, this four bedroom bungalow is set within landscaped garden grounds on the island of Muckle Roe.

The island itself has stunning coastal walks to the cliffs (k/a “The Hams”), outstanding beaches at Muckle Ayre and Little Ayre and an abundance of birdlife and wildlife (including terns, red throated divers, swans and otters to name a few).

Muckle Roe, conveniently connected to the mainland via a bridge, is some 3 miles from the self-contained village of Brae with all local amenities including a Co-op, Primary and Junior Secondary schools, bars, restaurants and take-aways, DIY store and the North Mainland Leisure Centre.

Sullom Voe oil terminal and gas plant is just 10 miles away providing good employment opportunities for the local area. There are further amenities in the town of Lerwick, approx. 28 miles south, Shetland’s capital.

This property presents an ideal opportunity as a family home given its rural and quiet location. It would benefit from some updating.
